Nantes welcomes Montpellier
Nantes welcomes Montpellier in a match from the 18th round of the French Ligue 1. Let’s examine this clash in our vip soccer bets for today.
Nantes are having a pretty average campaign so far. Right now the team is 14th in the standings with 20 points, having a record of 5 wins, 5 draws and 7 defeats. In their last five games in the league Nantes won just once – against Olympique Marseille, also doing two draws and suffering two defeats.
In their previous fixture Nantes visited the champion PSG and just as everyone expected, they suffered a defeat. The visitors offered a good fight to the Parisians, but PSG’s superstar Kylian Mbappe scored a winner for the 1-0 win in the 68th minute. Still, it was a pretty good game for Nantes.
Montpellier on the other hand are having a good season so far. Right now they are 4th in the league standings with 30 points. If they win this game, they will overtake Olympique Lyonnais at the 3rd spot and enter once again the Champions League zone. For the club it’d be a great achievement to return to the Champions League next season.
Right now Montpellier’s record in the league shows 8 wins, 6 draws and 3 defeats. In their last five games they are not really this consistent – just one win, two draws and two defeats. Surely their head coach Michel Der Zakarian hoped for a little bit better form in the last few weeks.
In their previous fixture Montpellier shared the points with Olympique Lyonnais for a 1-1 draw at home. It was a clash between two direct rivals for a Top 3 finish in the Ligue 1. Nabil Fekir opened the score for Lyonnais, but Ruben Aguilar managed to equalize for Montpellier just 9 minutes before the end.
These are our vip soccer bets for today for the Ligue 1 fixture between Nantes and Montpellier.
